PolyOne unveils fibre colouring technology at ITMA

PolyOne has launched a breakthrough technology for colouring polyester fibre that eliminates aqueous dyeing and its associated wastewater treatment, giving textile manufacturers increased production and greater flexibility, at the ongoing ITMA 2015 expo, at booth F129, hall 8.

ColorMatrix Fibre Colorant Solutions introduce late-stage colour injection for the spin colouring process, and can help to transform the way safety straps, upholstery fabrics, footwear, apparel, industrial fabrics, are manufactured.

John Van Hulle, president, global colour additives and inks, PolyOne said, “There is significant momentum in the textile manufacturing industry toward developing sustainable solutions across the entire supply chain. This solution offers the environmental benefits and operational efficiencies of spin colouring, but with greater production flexibility and development speed to help brands and fibre producers react faster to market trends.”

The new fibre colorant technology combines ColorMatrix liquid concentrates and proprietary high-pressure metering equipment to enable late-stage colour injection during melt extrusion spin colouring. While traditional aqueous dyeing can use up to 10 litres of water to colour a single kilogram of fibre, spin colouring uses no water, less energy and fewer chemicals. It also eliminates the secondary treatment operations needed to discharge water safely into the environment, according to a press release.

Adding liquid colour downstream minimizes colour contamination, reducing clean out and colour change time. As a result, ColorMatrix Fibre Colorant Solutions will enable manufacturers to efficiently produce smaller volumes and bespoke colours to meet the demand for mass customization and seasonal colours in markets such as apparel and footwear. Further, several injection points can be added to run multiple colours or additives at the same time on a single extruder to enhance flexibility.

In addition, these new solutions allow standard white polyester fibre producers with reactor spinning lines to produce coloured products in-line, eliminating the need for a secondary aqueous dyeing process. (GK)
